How to use the XLR (Mic) Input

Note: We do not by default have XLR microphones setup in all of our classrooms. If you need to borrow an XLR mic from Media Services for a lecture, send an email requesting an XLR microphone and XLR cable to media@help.carthage.edu and we'll set something up. Be sure to mention your name, your classroom, and the start & end dates and times for your request. We need at least 1 (one) full business day to process your request and get things ready for you. If you make your request less than one full business day in advance, we cannot promise that we will have the equipment and personnel ready for you in time.

  1. Make sure the projector is turned on (see instructions above).
  2. Plug your XLR mic into the Microphone Input plug on the front of the equipment rack.
  3. Turn off the projector when you’re done using it! Press the Off button on the Extron control panel to turn off the projector & raise the screen.
